I can hardly believe it is already February. That can only mean one thing! Valentine’s Day! I am a hopeless romantic at heart, but I am well aware that there are many who feel the pressure and even a touch of sadness when they don’t have a partner to celebrate the day.
Today I am joining Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate, plus 20 other table décor stylists to share our Valentine’s Day table decor.
Did you know that 20 percent of single people want to abolish Valentine’s Day altogether? Say it ain’t so!
Instead of cancelling Valentine’s day, I say celebrate it no matter what your relationship status! Go ahead, buy yourself flowers. In fact, I think everyone should buy themselves flowers all the time.
Do whatever makes you feel special on February 14th!
That is why, this year, I wanted my Valentine’s Table Decor to be fitting for not only a romantic dinner, but also a fun Galantine’s dinner party for those gal pals that you love like sisters.
Speaking of sisters, if you are lucky enough to have sisters, nieces, daughters or aunts, why not host them for a fun afternoon to celebrate at a table that is pretty in pink.
Deep down I am a girly girl and I just love all shades of pink and blush. I used this colour pallet as the inspiration for my Valentine’s table décor.
Inexpensive pink and blush spray roses cost only $8.00 per bundle at the grocery store. I arranged them in a thrifted pink depression glass vase that I was lucky to find this weekend for only $5.00.
Just two bunches of the roses were enough to create this simple and romantic rose arrangement. I will be sharing more about it, and the fun new flower arranging tool I used in a later post! There was plenty of blooms left to pop into simple glass jars.
I splurged on Kate Spade napkins from Homesense. By no means were they outrageously priced, but it has been a long time since I spent $20 on four napkins. But, when styling a table I try to keep the cost down, and often spend next to nothing, like I did for this Spring tablescape from last year.
I saved money when it comes to the table runner. Paper runners have graced my table before, but this time I went very basic and added a bit of whimsy using my Cricut Explore Air 2. Yes, you can iron the vinyl onto sturdy paper. Simple X and O printed in a brush font were cut out of the iron on vinyl.
To add a little texture, I draped a vintage lace tablecloth that belonged to my grandmother. There is just something about lace that just feels romantic, don’t you think? Plus, it pairs perfectly with the arrangement of roses.
A simple white plate stack features one of my favorite dinner plates purchased at Homesense a few years ago. A creamy white vintage plate purchased at a church sale sits on top.
A closer looks reveals the homemade heart shaped brownie, raspberry macaron and single rosebud that highlights each place setting.
Inexpensive champagne flutes in a pretty shade of pink can be filled with sparkling wine or sparkling water. Whatever suits your fancy.
A pink depression glass bowls of fresh strawberries add a pop of colour. And can be popped into the water glasses to add a bit of flavour.
And, just because I could look at this table all day, here are a few more photos to inspire you!
A wee peek at the no sew Valentine’s pillow I made last year.
How pretty would this table be for a spring or summer bridal shower? You can’t go wrong with garden roses, lace and chocolate!

Maureen your table is lovely and oh so pretty in pink. The champagne flutes are gorgeous and using your Grandmother’s tablecloth as a drape is a beautiful way to inspire memories too. Pinned, Happy Valentines Day and it’s a pleasure to hop with you. xox
Just beautiful Maureen! I am a pink lover to and I adore the soft shades you’ve chosen and the pink roses, swoon! I also love the way you did the lace tablecloth and the clever paper runner you made…of course the treats that await on the plates really draw the eye in, and bid a warm welcome to your table! I agree, pamper yourself on Valentine’s Day! Just lovely…

Maureen, I am loving your pretty in pink table. I definitely used pink for my Valentines this year. Partying with the ladies is a blast. How special to use your Grandmother’s tablecloth as a table drape. The paper runner is such a great idea. I adore the pink roses, along with the pink goblets. The sweets look incredible and so yummy. Always a pleasure to see your creative pretty tables.
I am right along with you loving all things pink this year! The pink depression glass dishes and pink champagne flutes are beautiful. The addition of the decorated brownie, macaron and rose on each plate is a pretty and thoughtful accent! Grocery store roses are just fine, aren’t they? Thanks again, so much for joining in another hop!
Wow love the elements of your table. The table set with the lace in the center is just the right romantic touch. I love the varying pinks you used the the pretty napkins. Those pieces of depression glass are lovely and so are the heart shaped browine and macaroon! The flowers are beautiful and romantic!
Maureen, there is something to be said about real, fresh pink roses. Romantic and beautiful. You certainly made a beautiful selection for your centerpiece along with your grandmother’s lace tablecloth and the pink depression glass. The yummy decorated heart shaped brownie and pink macaroon and flower makes the perfect statement on your white dinnerware. It is beautiful art as well as it being edible art! So very lovely and is a gorgeous table to be celebrated with anyone and any time. Happy Valentine’s Day.
Debbee M says
Maureen, your centerpiece is a stunner! Love the soft, blush pink of the beautiful roses, and how absolutely perfect in the vintage glass. Bunching the lace down the center works ups the romantic or girly factor. And, I love the X’s and O’s you made for a modern twist and sense of whimsy.
Barbara Chapman says
Really beautiful table, Maureen! I love your new napkins with the depression glasses and pink roses… sigh!
Happy almost Valentine’s,
Sandra Garth says
Sentimental elements on a table with their beautiful memories are always heartwarming. I’m a huge fan of a sweet treat on the table and you picked to delicious ones. I bought a basic Cricut some years back and hardly used it at all. Thanks to your inspiration I will have to unearth it, blow the dust off and get busy.
Calypso in the Country says
I am loving all the shades of pink and the layering of tablecloths and plates. So pretty! Yes, it’s definitely a girly table and it makes me one to set one for my friends. I have two boys so I don’t get to indulge in too much girly decor in my home so I crave it! You’ve inspired me!
Ann Krucek says
What a beautiful table! I would enjoy sipping a bit of champagne from those pretty pink flutes! Your roses are wonderful, love the color of them. I have to admit that I am a horrible brownie baker, mine never would never be such perfect heart shaped as yours ❤️They look delicious and I am now craving brownies!! I hope you have a special Valentine’s Day!!
Well… as you know… I am not a big St Valentine’s Day fan… hehehehe BUT…. I love this.
So, so pretty Momo. I love waiting to see what you will come up with. Looks gorgeous! xx

Maureen, you’ve created a wonderfully girly table to celebrate sisterly love, or any form of love for another for that matter! Adding your grandmother’s tablecloth lends a sentimental appeal and loving touch that goes well beyond the traditional idea of couples at Valentine’s. Your depression glass compote/vase was a great find and really makes your floral arrangement stand out (and up) in great style. Love the napkins, too.
It’s a pleasure to be in your company and celebrate the friendship our tablescaping blog hops have helped connect us all together over the years. Happy February!

Maureen, Your pretty in pink tablescape is delightful! I love everything! Your sweet roses in a pink depression glass container is so pretty and the plate with a rose bud, macaroon, and decorated heart brownie is so striking. I love your grandmothers lace tablecloth and lovely floral napkins! Pink flutes that have a sparkle add a festive flair.
Have a lovely Valentine’s dinner. Your table is ready to celebrate.
Pam Richardson says
Maureen, I am also loving pink. The spray roses in the depression glass vase paired with your lace runner is so pretty with a touch of romance. The salad plate with the heart-shaped brownie, raspberry macaron, and a rose-bud is perfect for the special day. Your table is lovely and I know any guest would be honored to share it with you. Happy Valentine’s Day
Shirley Wood says
Your centerpiece is stunning! I love how you arranged the roses and what a fabulous find with that depression glass bowl! All of the pink is so pretty on your sweet table.
How creative to use the brown paper and embellish it using your Cricut! So smart! I love that!
I was not blessed with a sister but I do have two daughters and they would love enjoying fellowship at such a gorgeous and frilly table!
Maureen, I’m a pink girl at heart so I love everything about your table. The color of the roses is so soft but vibrant. Those pink Champagne flutes are to die for. And your plate of sweet treats is not only pretty but I’m sure delicious. Love the “bunched up” cloth in the center of the table. Great table.
Maureen, I adore all of your gorgeous pink roses–such a pretty table! Happy to be joining you this week! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

Maureen, you outdid yourself with this stunning Valentine’s Day table. I love all of the roses and the desserts look amazing.
